    I’m sorry, but he’s not changing course, at least not yet. I understand the southern part of the pipeline does not require presidential approval.

  • David Bennett

    Many other articles on the pipeline have stated that no federal approvals are necessary for the southern portion of the pipeline. If this is true than this is another case of Obama taking credit for something that he has nothing to do with, like our recent increase in crude oil production and the recent, slight improvement in the economy.

    Professor Mead, with regret I believe you are – incorrect? The ONLY portion of the pipeline that needs federal approval is that part that crosses international boundries. That part is still on hold thanks to that h&pocrite in the white house. Apparently there weren’t enough campaign contributors to clear the path for this obvious boon to our economy.

  • Indeed, it strikes me as at least intellectually disingenuous, if not dishonest, to fail to note, as others here have, that the president is once more taking credit where no credit is due, and, to put it as gently as circumstances permit, hoping to mislead the electorate . . . yet again. We expect more and better from you, professor.

    I can only hope that said President ends up losing both sides.
